Heat the tbsp of coconut oil in a pan and add the onion. Saute until soft. Add the spinach and dried garlic until spinach is wilted. Set aside to cool.
Heat the remaining oil in a saucepan gently. Add a third of the sweet potato and fry until golden brown (could take up to 5 minutes, watch it carefully to avoid burning). Remove and place on kitchen towel to drain. Continue with the remaining batches of sweet potato until all cooked.
